Daddy's Birthday

What is this... a post that is actually up to date and on time!!!??  Amazing!  Yesterday we got our first snow... nothing like the first snow to discover we have a pair of boots that are too small, a pair of snow pants that are too small and one pair that is too big! Sigh... oh well none of this actually stopped them from playing outside so I would say we are just fine for now!

I whipped up this for her to wear to the Santa Brunch.  I have been wanting to use this fabric since it is holiday-ish without being so specific that she can't just wear it all winter long! 1 1/2 hours, cut out to finish... not bad!

I had mentioned needing a photo from the road so here one is!  I love all of our windows!!!!  I am SO excited about that!
 Daddy also had a birthday yesterday!!  We are SO very lucky to have such a wonderful, patient, kind, loving, fun and funny Daddy and Hubby!

Daddy *whispers*: "On the count of three lets kiss Keaton"!

I can NOT believe that November is over!  Not sure where it went!
I finished this dress a while back.  Pattern: Portabello Pixie Annalise.
 Grammy and Poppy came to visit!  My kids are SO very lucky to have 3 sets of Great-Grandparents!!

Last Basketball game.

Camden's Thanksgiving feast at Preschool.
 We spent Thanksgiving at Grandma's and Grandpa's house.  We enjoyed lots of cousin time which of course is loud and crazy with 7 kids 7 and under!
Feeding the ducks!  They were so cute on the ice, slipping and sliding!

Amid all the crazy noise I found these girls plugging their ears and playing!

We spend a couple hours with cousins.  The difference between girls and boys is amazing.  The boys were running around crazy and here the girls are coloring quietly!  We wanted to spend more time with all of them but Camden came down with a cold!

Little missy Tiana and Stella!!

The only time these boys were sitting quietly the entire weekend... and it only lasted a few moments!
 I just tried out a new pattern this week for Camden.  It is the Peek-a-boo pattern Hangout Hoodie.  I love the fit of it on Camden!  He of course loves it because it has dinosaurs, a hood and a pocket!


We will catch up with an long post!  I had my VERY busy photo season and then my computer crashed so these photos have been hanging out on my computer for a while now!

Nana and I took Tiana to Disney on Ice!  I surprised her with a new dress from my favorite pattern! You can find it here:

She had such a wonderful time and just sat in awe in entire time!
 We had a fun season at Boise State games!

Cutest little Broncos!

We went to Portland for a weekend trip!  We had such a fun time, it was a great little getaway!
New outfit!  She outgrew her pants so I made another pair for her and a new shirt for Fall. Pants are Portabello Pixie and shirt is O+S (modified a bit).

Being lazy!
We spent a beautiful day at the Portland Zoo!
Baby turtles!!!

The kids BEGGED to go work out!  So of course we let them run off some energy.

Happy Halloween from a little fox, the tooth fairy, and a football player.

Little cutie being a fox.
 Keaton had basketball this last month.  He LOVED it!  We are going to have figure out another plan for this little boy next year he outgrew YBA in a hurry.  His coach said we need to either bump him up or find a more competitive league for him next time.  We have a very good little defender and shooter on our hands!!

I will never tire of these little drawings.  The one on the left is Keaton's and of course it is him playing basketball.  Tiana's is in the middle.  I love her hair and eye lashes on her people.  Camden is on the right and look who can write his own name now!!!! He draws very detailed people for a 4 year old!!
 We spent an afternoon in the leaves!

Awww.... LOVE this one!!  These two are inseparable.

Keaton's basketball games were adorable!  If the ball was on the floor you could be SURE that Keaton was in the middle of the pile fighting for the ball!!!

He has always slept like this! So cute!
